Forgiveness & Your Life's Unfinished Business, by Stephen Levine

 Lovely passage. What if you can't forgive yourself? What if you have hurt some one you love and they won't accept you back into their life? What if you keep going over and over what you have done, apologised to the person but they still won't let you back into their life, the more they reject you, the more it makes you feel guilty and sad and unhappy and it consumes your thinking from the time you wake up in the morning, throughout the day and even in your dreams. How do you forgive yourself? Its not always the case that Forgiveness is all about forgiving some one else, but forgiving yourself. I think it would be easier to forgive some one else but so very hard, very very hard to forgive one self..
